GLRPPR Sector Resource: Best Management Practices for Environmental Stewardship of Florida Shooting Ranges

Title:
Best Management Practices for Environmental Stewardship of Florida Shooting Ranges

Abstract:
Florida depends on groundwater for its drinking water supply, and on surface water for the outdoor recreation industry. High rainfall and acidic conditions, typical in Florida, cause lead to be more mobile in the environment. Therefore, proper management of outdoor shooting ranges is especially important in the Sunshine State. This manual was designed to assist in developing Best Management Practices (BMPs) at outdoor shooting ranges. It was developed through a cooperative effort by members of the shooting range community and industry, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, and the Florida DEP.
